PDRI Capabilities under HCaTS

For more than 45 years, PDRI has been a leading source of research-based innovation and strategies for addressing the human capital management needs of government clients. Our pragmatic, performance-based solutions have been used in virtually every large-scale human capital management reform effort in the federal government. Our talent management solutions help agencies hire, train, develop, manage, and motivate high-performance cultures. Custom services offered by PDRI through HCaTS include:

Assessment and Hiring  Organizations with the most successful hiring programs go beyond assessing job skills to assess candidate fit with their organization’s unique values and culture. Our candidate-centric, brand-enhancing assessments provide unrivaled psychometric underpinnings and validity. We bring powerful and transparent assessment science, AI applications, and predictive analytics to ensure evidence-based, fair, objective, and accurate decisions across the talent management life cycle.

Leadership Development  Leading through change requires devising new strategies, processes, and structures and building new cultures for innovation, performance, and ARA – Adaptability, Resilience, Agility. Our diagnostic assessments and enablement programs help leaders understand how they can best enable performance in their situations. We analyze the leadership context, pinpoint critical challenges leaders face, and identify leader characteristics that are critical for success. This enables optimized fit of leaders to roles, insights to guide succession decisions, and leader development that is fine-tuned for each individual and context.

Performance Management  There is no “one-size-fits-all” performance management (PM) process that works well for every situation. Instead, PM needs to be designed to fit the strategy, goals, context, and maturity of each organization. We help our clients design PM processes that are ideally suited to their contexts and enable the mindset, behaviors, and real-time practices that matter most in driving high performance.

Career Management  Our career building blocks flexibly accommodate changing work requirements and structures, enabling new roles to be defined quickly with aligned development activities. These help individuals approach career planning focused on skills that will aid them in shifting with changing work needs. Our unique career matching tools further assist by identifying obvious and non-obvious career opportunities for which individuals are well-fit, taking a whole-person approach.
